drove the micra for the first time this morning. unstable isn't the word. granddad agrees it needs to be lowered a little. not too much though. must say its a lot easier to park though and the box on this compared to the one on the note is sh**e but guess ill learn to live with it. think ive got left hand reverse mastered now. going to work on parallel parking tomorrow.

ive never been so embarrassed in my life. that car is just terrible. and that big dent in the back is one of many to come I believe. cant wait for you to write it off or kill the engine so you can get something better !

I had 14 minors. Another 2 and I'd have failed :shock:

In my defence, it was Monday, Wales had won the Grand Slam, I'm welsh, and I'd been out all weekend celebrating ;)

Congratulations on the pass :D

I passed when I was 27 too, canny remember these days how many minors I got, I passed third time :oops: I took my test because I lived far from the village and when I had walked my baby son there, the bus driver would not allow the pushchair on the bus :roll: so I learned to drive. My husband passed 6 months later I gave him a card saying congrat's on passing, later I admitted having a commiserations card in the car :D
